Welcome Digital Scrapbookers

So glad you found me. Just come and sit a spell, it's time to go exploring. Life is an unscripted journey that if you're lucky enough, you capture it with words and photos.

Did you know that the Easter Bunny is busy, busy and just more busy coloring all those thousands of eggs for everyone's baskets.  As a little girl, I just couldn't wait to go find each and every single one.  Some of mine contained candy, but most of the eggs were REAL. 
 
My mother always included one egg that was BROWN and one egg that was WHITE.  Each had a special place in our Easter decorations.  The white represented Christ's birth and the brown represented the death and resurrection of Christ, both coming from the stable where Jesus was born.  Both treasured above else.  Whoever found them, placed it next to the Bible and our cross and became an intricate part of the story of Easter.  
 
THESE EGGS WERE ALWAYS HANDLED WITH CARE.
And, if your children are little (hard boil them)
and leave them their natural color.
And, this tradition was carried on with my children
and it has continued now that my children have
children.  Hopefully it will never end.
 
And, just like all children .... I remember the fun of coloring the eggs.  The laughter, the spilled food color and the funny faces.  And, as my children became older .... the money eggs also made their appearances, but the "TREASURED NATURAL EGGS" still had THEIR place of honor in our homes.

Just wanted to share another one of our traditions.  Who knows maybe you will want to start this one in your own home.
 
May your day be filled with love and laughter.  Hugs, Sue
